An Offer You Can't Refuse
Author: Tom Buice (Tennessee, US)
I am a gadget man. When I discover a new electronic device or software, I get excited. Recently I found a free scheduling app for my tablet that would send reminders about project-due dates and help me to plan my work and hold myself accountable. I told my wife, Bonnie, about it and downloaded it to her tablet. Then I sent emails to my three children, urging them to download it quickly, since it would go back to full price the next day.
This zeal to share good news is a smaller version of the fervour that wells up in us when we receive Christ. What a treasure we’ve found! We feel buoyant, free from guilt. Immediately we wonder if others are like us, feeling the pain of guilt. I have discovered just what they need, something they literally can’t live without. Christ offers freedom from guilt, the power to overcome and daily fellowship with God. What’s more we now have a new understanding of scripture and ultimately a home in heaven. This is priceless! I want to share this good news.
Prayer: Dear Lord, give us a renewed desire to share the good news. Amen
